    Great review Ernie!!! I agree, the Cusano is a great go to cigar for the price. I did not experience the burn issues or chemical flavors you did and I hope I never do.

    Very nice. I like the review. In fact I’m thinking to get a sampler of those cigars since I haven’t tried one.

    I must have gotten a bum one … I found it uninteresting — none of the flavor profiles you experienced. Too bad — I was looking forward to it. I’ll try another. Thanks for the review.

    It’s a sin the way most cigar manufacturers rush their wares to market. I try to patronize manufacturers that put “box dates” on the bottom of the boxes. Cigars really need six to eight months from the box date to be enjoyable- One year, you pretty much eliminate all the weirdness from them. They burn better, taste better, all the harshness is gone, and they won’t have you praying to the porcelain gods.

    My Review of the Cusano 59 Rare Cameroon Preferido

    After I had enjoyed the new Sun Grown so much, I was really excited about the Rare Cameroon as the Cameroon leaf is my favorite wrapper.

    The cigar looks good enough; it has a nice dull sheen but very little tooth for a Cameroon leaf. There are a few water spots on the wrapper and it is very firm to the touch, but other than that it looks nicely rolled.

    There is a little acidity to the smoke, almost like a citrus quality; there is also the typical sweet wood flavor from a Cameroon wrapped cigar present early on.

    A subtle spice builds, just a touch of pepper but an underlying metallic quality as well.

    The burn on this cigar is more even than the new Sun Grown, but already I can tell you I prefer the Sun grown to the Rare Cameroon. The Rare Cameroon is not as smooth as the Sun Grown even though the Sun Grown was a stronger cigar.

    About halfway through the cigar began to get harsh and the harshness kept building as I smoked. This was not as enjoyable as I thought it would be. This cigar just does not seem ready yet. I think it needed more time.
